Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Pramzius, Berlin Wall Watch, Limited Edition

For my Sunday watch-of-the-day, I'm closing-out this fast-moving weekend, with the Pramzius, Fall of the Berlin Wall Watch. DNA timepieces, are watches that are constructed with material from an object, that usually has some historical significance. And as DNA pieces go, you won't find one with more historical significance, than the Pramzius, Berlin Wall Watch.


There are numerous conversation sparking design elements with this piece. Start with the distressed, aged look of the stainless steel case; meant to replicate the look of the weathered stones within the Berlin Wall. The milling of the case, inspired by the architecture of the Brandenburg Gate, with the compass points, a poignant reminder of the division of East and West Germany, that the Berlin Wall represented. Move to the marble dial; marble, a dial material that you won't see used very often in watch dial design, used as a perfect canvass and backdrop, for the authentically replicated, Berlin Wall graffiti art. Then the showstopper, and what makes this a true DNA timepiece, are pieces of stone, set into the crown, from the actual, original, Berlin Wall; it doesn't get anymore DNA than that!


You should know by now, I love the occasional pop and infusion of color in my watches, and the Berlin Wall watch offers plenty. And such a crazy cool assortment of colors in a watch, deserves an accessory pairing that's equally up to the task. Enter, the graffiti bracelet, a perfect find that I was lucky to locate through a vendor on Etsy. A wrist pairing and Wrist-Game today of true epic and historic proportions!
